My mother has complained to Dr Bhatia for 3 years about back pain and leg weakness. He said told her the pain was due to depression and that she needed to walk more to strengthen her legs. She was in the ER two days ago for unrelated reasons and during a CAT scan they found a fracture in her back. Just because your patients are old, does not mean they don't know what they are talking about.

I have liked working with Dr Bhatia. He spends time and really listens. I appreciate the fact that he is very conservative with medicines. I have been seeing him for a year and would recommend him to friends.

I would not recommend this Doctor to anyone with a senior family member. He does not show concern for my mom's health in the least. Last Friday 3/24/2017 when she went in, his statement to her was "I can't do anything for you" She went to her lung doctor the next Monday 3/27/2017 and they found that she had a sinus infection and needed to be on antibiotics, have a breathing treatment and be on cough meds to help with the sinus infection. DO NOT SEE THIS DOCTOR..
